It's only a whimsical notion at the moment, but I have a non-disc rear Big'un Hope hub. Do you think it could be converted to bolt- on (10mm) from QR :?: I guess using their SS axle
Do Hope do this kinda thing for you by post, or would I try and find a shop that would do it.
Cheers
Carl

Thanks mate, trying to work out whether the axle is threaded or the spacer is threaded :?

Do you mean the allen key bolt on type? If so it's the axle that is threaded. You used to be able to specify this type of fitting when you ordered the hub but I think that they may have stopped doing it now. The only hub that now comes with a threaded axle is the SS/trials hub but that uses larger diameter bolts and axle.
